that president obama's right about this. but i think compromise is going to be necessary to achieve some result. >> let me bring in abbe. your father is known as a moderate republican and a good dealmaker, a man who used to negotiate. what do you make of this? and what does he make of this? >> i think morale is so low right now. the country's so divided. especially for my generation. we're the ones that are going to be handed down the $60 trillion deficit. they will come to a deal. but right now, it's political theater. and it's probably going to look like the simpson-bowles. that will come full-circle again. >> here's a problem the republicans have got themselves into. is obama has been very clever here, the president. i think what he's done is skillfully said to the public, if he goes over the fiscal cliff, the republicans are prepared to make the entire middle class to pay more tax to save 2% of the wealthiest americans paying a little bit more. and that's a very bad position for the republicans to find themselves in, isn't it? >> it certainly is. it's a very bad position for them to find th

: right. >> secondly, he wanted obama to agree that he would back hillary if she runs for president in 2016, and that was a verbal commitment he believed he had from barack obama. shortly after the election, according, again, to my sources, clinton sent obama a list of five names from which he could choose the next chairman of the democratic national convention. lou: a list from clinton to the president? >> all his guys, or in some cases, his women. lou: do you know who's on the list? >> i don't know the names on the list, but the people on the list, i'm told, were completelyignored -- completely ignored, and clinton learned that none of his people were even vetted or given serious consideration. clinton then learned, as we all did, that barack obama had reid appointed, wasserman-s crarks hulz, his woman, his lady, to the chair of the democratic national committee. what did he do? clinton phoned the president wants to complain about this and speak to the white house. speak to the president. the white house did not put his call through, and he never heard from the president for 24 ho
the size and scope of the government. >> that's right. president obama for at least two years now, maybe longer, has always been talking about a balanced approach to tackling the deficit. when he talks about balanced approach, he means tax revenue and cutting spending, however the only part of the conversation we're having is about tax revenue. no conversation whatsoever about the spending part of this equation. that's because he has no intention of cutting spending. >> sean: senator chambliss is clear, it's increasing revenue, getting more money from the american taxpayer. isn't that a tax? >> yes. what they fail to see or don't want to see or acknowledge this country doesn't have a revenue problem. there's plenty of revenue coming into the treasury. remember the "t" in tea party stands for tax enough already. we have a severe spending problem. before barack obama became president, sean, federal government spending was about 18%, 19% of gdp. barack obama and the democrats have pushed it up to 24% to 25%. >> we're talking about spending more money to artificially prop up the markets. the
security. but the obama administration and harry reid right now democrats don't want social security even on the table because it is not connected. the republicans -- want it there because they want to cut social security but the democrats are saying look, social security is not the problem. there is an easy fix to that. we'll take care of that later. we'll take care of that next. but right now don't touch social security. don't touch it. just put it out of the equation. and deal with fiscal crisis as it is. deal with the need for combination balanced approach of spending cuts that the president's put forward and new tax revenue which the president knows most of it has to come for tax cuts for the wealthiest. when we solve that problem then we'll let them deal with social security. but not muck it up right now. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." and i'm just blanking a little bit. i think his phrase for it was feed the beast going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young
to take the obama deal right now. here is the clip quickly. >> my view, we all agree that we're not going to raise taxes on people that make less than $250,000, we should take them out of this discussion right now, and continue to fight against any rate increases and continue to work honestly for a better deal. >> that's what the president wants, extend them for everyone under $250,000. i'm curious what you think. do you think that someone like cornyn, someone like boehner is the right leader for the party, or someone more like what cole is saying? >> there is a strategy to putting together a deal and that goes for, in washington, d.c. or, you know, in your private life. and that is you don't give the other side everything they want and then negotiate the rest of the deal. that's sort of a problem. you have things that they want, things that you want and you have to sort of bring them together and force people to give things that they don't want in order to get the things that they do. and when you give the folks the thing that they have been wanting most out of the box, and not get anyth
right. by the way president obama who is a former -- i'll give him former -- >> former pothead for the president. >> bill: he knows that smoking pot is not a dangerous practice. all right. we're still on our central question about i think the president decided and i helped, with your help, reinforce that last night. i think he's decided to hold the line, to let the country go over the cliff. to let all of the tax rates go up rather than give the 2% a special, continued bonus. there is some risk involved is. it worth taking that risk. charlie is down in boynton beach, florida. good morning. >> caller: good morning, bill. first off merry christmas to you. >> bill: early merry christmas back at you. not so early. i've been to three holiday parties already. or christmas parties. >> caller: anyway, i wanted to let you know -- the point of the matter is this, i'm going to go over the cliff because i'm sec and tired of the rich always getting richer and the poor getting scriewnd the middle class getting screwed of w
're at a stalemate and not really moving forward as president obama would hope. >> all right. many thanks, katy pavlich, appreciate the rundown. >>> both president obama and speaker john boehner took turns today finger pointing on the fiscal cliff talks. take a listen to this. >> it's not acceptable to moo a me to you for members of congress to hold middle class tax cuts to hostage simply because they don't want tax rates on upper income folks to go up. >> the white house spent three weeks trying to develop a proposal, and they send one up here that calls for $1.6 trillion in new taxes, calls for a little not even $400 billion in cuts. it was not a serious proposal. >> all right. so where are we right now? even while the fate of our fragile economy hangs in the fiscal cliff balance, for that let's turn to our distinguished guests. peter goodman. he's the huffington post business editor on a former "new york times"man. we welcome back republican congresswoman nan hayworth and haddy heath, senior policy analyst with the independent women's forum. okay. so mcconnell laughed at the tim geithner pro
schumer, 9 state, from the federal government including obama, is that right? >>guest: absolutely not. not only me but my neighbors feel the same. we are the forgotten borough, we are the forgotten people. we are the middle class people and we are the working class people that have paid our taxes and we are not getting anything in run. it is always fema, deny this. you have to reapply. it is a joke. a joke. you are the president of the united states, you got that pen, you bailed out the banks, bail out the american people that don't have homes for the holidays. the president is going away. he is going to hawaii for christmas for 20 something days, where am i going to be? where are my neighbors going to be? we will not have a place called home. mr. president, you have to do something. you are the president. you got to get fema to react and put the trailers in areas and let people have places to live for the holiday. you are going to enjoy your holiday in hawaii. i'm going to be here with in lights, no electric, no plumbing, not having my kids here, what am i going to do for the holiday
't. she'll knock his head off. >> all right, president obama wants supporters to go on twitter as washington takes on the fiscal cliff. he's asking people to use the #my2k to explain what they would do with the $2,000 that could be lost to a middle class tax hike. one user talks about buying a mac book. the other talks about the child they're expecting and making the mortgage. but the president is also finding some critics. one of whom wants details on spending cuts. tennessee republican congresswoman marcia blackburn is not thrilled with the fact that all the chair manships voted on yesterday, 19 out of 21, none of them went to women. she says women should be elevated any time there's an opportunity. >>> mitt romney isn't just having lunch with president obama today. he's also seeing running mate paul ryan for the first time since the election. finally, michelle obama unveiled the holiday decorations at the white house which featured 54 christmas trees, a gingerbread house and a statue of the first dog which looked real. >>> let's go to wall street where markets did see a boos
to president obama right now. >> i have fiscal cliff fatigue. thank you very much. >> sure. tracy: we all do, dennis, but we have to talk about it because congress has to deal with it. we have a new gallup poll showing 5 # 4% of the voters rate the honesty of members of congress below that of used car salesmen. dianne black of tennessee joins us from the home state to hear what the constituents are telling her. what are con constituents sayin? >> well, you know, i'm hearing -oth from my individual constituents and business owners they are really concerned about the spending problem in washington. that's not really talked about. there's a lot of focus on the other side, but there is a real need to control the spending because we know we spend more than what we bring in every year, can want continue down this path, and you'll go off the cliff. we have to resolve that by going off the drivers of the debt, the entitlement programs, and we have to talk about that. tracy: right. we're not. i'm not sure why. i think an easy fix is raise retirement age. is that on the table for the republicans? >> w
with george w. bush? >> no. >> he grew a beard, and he went and hung out with polar bears, right? >> but obama wants to look like the compromiser. he wants to look like the bipartisan guy. >> he can't do a beer summit with mitt romney. >> do something with baner. >> obama could use some instruction. we hope in this private meeting obama gets some instruction and pays attention to it. >> is romney going to have the guts to give it to the president some. >> i hope so. >> well that's a note from mitt to take. from awkward lunches to fiscal hunches. will taxing the rich help the sich? did you get that? that was for situation. warren buffet was on something called "the today show." he said the strategy behind his desire to bleed bucks from his billionaire buddies is how great it will make people earning under $250,000 feel. have a listen, listen havers. >> bottom line, would raising taxes on the wealthiest americans have a chilling affect on hiring in this country? >> no. i think it would have a great affect in terms of the morality of the -- the morale of the middle class who have seen themselves
. we're following developing news right now. president obama is taking to twitter right now, part of the intensifying push by the white house to get public opinion on their side over negotiations against house republicans on the so-called fiscal cliff. the president himself tweeted out plans for the q and a a short time ago saying he'll answer questions about the cliff, his proposal and pending tax hikes on the official white house twitter feed. press secretary jay carney insisted the white house is still optimistic it can reach a deal with congressional republicans. >> there has been progress, and we can achieve a bipartisan agreement. the obstacle remains at this point the refusal to acknowledge by republican leaders that there is no deal that achieves the kind of balance that is necessary without raising rates on the top 2%. >> and there are just 29 days to go for the two parties to find some sort of middle ground, and joining me now from the white house nbc news correspondent kristen welker. what's the back story on this it twitter q and a for the president, which should start
hum humorous, but you do wonder about the dynamics behind the scenes. >> president obama is right in the short term. right now it's the postures pr phase of the entire negotiations, but we're probably going to see the negotiations start in ernest around middle september, close to the christmas holiday season. at that point i wouldn't be surprised if president obama, john boehner, and other key folks are actually locked up somewhere in maybe camp david, maybe at the white house. that's when the big talks will start. not now but in the next couple of weeks. >> back to the power move as it's described by speaker boehner. who are the strongest allies. we've seen paul ryan all but vanish here other than when we put the picture up on the committee and who is on it. who are the allies supporting speaker boehner that are team players? >> there was a criticism in the suspicion about a year ago that even some of john boehner's top deputies weren't always on board. that came about during the debt ceiling debate of 2011 where there was a lot of suspicion where eric cantor the house majority l
's not the right direction to go. >> it's interesting how no one from the bibz community has said president obama is wrong in all of this. none of the ceos who met with the president of the united states today came forward and challenged the president's plan. democratic leader nancy pelosi told me last night, ceos have been very understanding of the plan set forth by the white house. the business community is willing to accept rate increases. they are really making more concession than john boehner. eric cantor says republicans are not going to adjourn this year until a deal is reached. is that a sign of early capitulation? he knows republicans can't go home to their districts with absolutely nothing to show for it. that's not what the american people voted for. john boehner says he's willing to stick around town to get a deal done? >> i'll be here and i'll be available at any moment to sit down with the president, to get serious about solving this problem. >> but president obama says john boehner's presence is not the solution, it's the problem. >> the holdup right now is that speaker boehner to
. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. president obama has john boehner boxed in and is done playing games. now it's getting good. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> let's allow higher rates to go up for the top 2%. that includes all of you. >> the president holds the line on taxes and draws the line on the debt ceiling. >> i will not play that game. >> tonight, democratic whip steny hoyer gives me the latest fiscal cliff developments and the democratic line on medicare. tom perriello from the center of american progress action fund on how democrats can deal with republicans who can't deal with reality. rubio and ryan reload with a new message for the middle class. >> both parties tend to divide americans into our voters and their voters. >> but there is no escaping their own policies. >> we're going to a majority of takers versus makers in america. >> dnc chair debbie wasserman schultz responds tonight. plus, senator barbara boxer on her new plan for national polling
. and so, right now, we're almost nowhere. >> his frustration is understandable. obama did not give an inch in this proposal. pretty much the same as his budget. the white house would note it is pretty much the same as the budget he just won an election on, actually. so it shouldn't be a shock that obama's opening bid is his platform. he just won an election on that platform. those are his policies, it is what he promised. negotiations are beginning but you compromise with the other guy, not with yourself. doesn't mean you're not willing to compromise. obama said as much today. >> in washington, nothing's easy, so you know, there's going to be prolonged negotiations. and all of us will have to get out of our comfort zones to make that happen. i'm willing to do that. i'm hopeful that enough members of congress in both parties are willing to do that as well. we can solve these problems. >> boehner's surprise is in part because this is a different obama he is now negotiating with. and it is not just that obama won an election. he has often compromised on his own. he has offered plans that trac
split right down the metal on the political ppll on how they want obama to cut the deficit. 41 percent responded in favor of spending cuts. 41 percent of respondents saying they favor tax increases. the white house says it will offer a counterproposal to house speaker proposal. saying that unless he accepts tax increases on the rich the president is willing to go over the cliff. let's get straight to the politics of these developments and the rhetoric and possible economic impact of failure to resolve the issues. joining as, former special assistant to president george w. bush, a veteran political consultants and republican pollster. let's start, if i may, with you. do you think both sides right now are seriously ready to go over the cliff? >> i think the president is very ready because they are reading into this election last month a mandate that i simply don't see. the president got 15 million americans to vote against him which fail to produce any type of meaningful budget in his democratic controlled senate. we are at the disco club because of the president's inability to ever a si

shows more clearly why their confidence peaked right before the vote. over the last weekend there, the romney numbers showed romney gaining strong momentum in these key states. in wisconsin, obama lost 4 points in the polling just as romney gained 4 tying up the race. in new hampshire, obama lost 4 while romney gained 3. giving him a decisive lead. the magazine quotes a romney aide on election night talking to romney's son tagg as the results were coming in. he looked like he was in a complete state of shock, as if these numbers cannot be real. to make matters worse, their polling told them florida and virginia, two states that romney lost, were in the bag. the republican party is left asking itself what went wrong and how they fix it. john brabender is a republican strategist and top adviser to rick santorum, and robert shrum, democratic strategist and columnist for the daily beast. john, you're on the inside. you know something about this. do you understand how somebody would think that the electorate that's going to participate in 2012, in a general election with barack obama,

with that argument? >> i hope they do not believe that argument. look, maybe barack obama is right. maybe if you raise these taxes, it will not hurt the economy.

to have you all here. all right. if president obama wants to get anything done in his second term, democrats in the senate will have to overcome one major obstacle, the filibuster. since democrats took control of both chambers of congress in 2007, republicans have used the filibuster as a bludgeon against them to pass basic legislation. the senate bills that actually passed has dropped from just over 25% to a record low of 2.8% this year. the rate held steady at 10% through the clinton and bush years and then plummeted when democrats took control of congress in 2007. that is due in no small part to the filibuster. it's mutated to a routine impediment to legislative progress. it has turned congress into a body incapable of acting except in times of crises. it's just like the fiscal cliff right now. this was designed to force congress to deal with the deficit. now senate majority leader harry reid is proposing changes to the filibuster that might make senate lesseesy. right now senators can block motions to proceed which means the senate can't even debate the legislation in question
